McGehee Career Pathways Hosts Hiring Fair

Potential employers met with students last week at a Hiring Fair hosted by the Career Pathways Initiative Program at the UAM College of Technology-McGehee. Students were interviewed or offered the opportunity to interview at a later date and a number of students were offered employment, according to Cortez C. Smith, program director for the Career Pathways Initiative. "This was a great event for the university and the community," said Smith. "We were able to assist in the process of helping a family or a student. We were able to show students and citizens of the community who would hire them with their skills and training.
